Emergency Award: RADx-UP - Social, Ethical, and Behavioral Implications (SEBI) Research on Disparities in COVID-19 Testing among Underserved and Vulnerable Populations (U01 Clinical Trials Optional)

RFA
Tuesday, April 13, 2021
Thursday, July 8, 2021
U01
RFA-OD-21-009

Funding Opportunity Purpose

High rates and disparities of COVID-19 infection and mortality continue among underserved and vulnerable populations across the United States. The overarching goal of the Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics for Underserved Populations (RADx-UP) initiative is to understand and ameliorate factors that have placed a disproportionate burden of the pandemic on underserved and/or vulnerable populations, specifically by implementing programs that expand the scope and reach of COVID-19 testing interventions to reduce these disparities. To address barriers to testing and vaccination, social, ethical, and behavioral research is urgently needed to inform related efforts. The purpose of this Phase II RADx-UP Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to expand research to understand and address the social, ethical, and behavioral implications (SEBI) of COVID-19 testing interventions among underserved and vulnerable populations. Proposed studies for Phase II are encouraged to move beyond descriptive health disparities research to focus on developing interventions and other actionable solutions in collaboration with community partners and stakeholders. The funding for this initiative is provided from the. American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.

HEAL Initiative: Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Limited Competition to Support Mentorship of Junior Investigators

Notice of Special Interest
Friday, April 9, 2021
Sunday, June 13, 2021
K24
NOT-NS-21-026

Funding Opportunity Purpose

This Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) provides an opportunity for researchers funded by the Helping to End Addiction Long-Term (HEAL) initiative to devote more time for mentorship activities. The NIH defines a mentor as experienced scientist who can help guide the research of junior investigators and challenge them to develop independence as researchers. The objectives of mentoring include to enhancing a mentees approach to scientific investigation, developing their critical thinking and communication skills and assisting with their progression the research community. Mentoring responsibilities involve helping junior investigators defining research goals, supporting the achievement of those goals, and discussing and evaluating progress throughout training. A mentor should provide constructive and timely feedback, support training, networking and professional development opportunities, and acknowledge a mentees contribution to research. The award is intended to provide protected time for established investigators supported by the HEAL Initiative to simultaneously provide mentoring to junior investigators. The supplement is intended for investigators (principal investigators or co-investigators) who have a record of supervising and mentoring clinical pain researchers. The NIH HEAL Initiative is a trans-agency effort to speed scientific solutions to stem the national opioid public health crisis through understanding, managing, and treating pain and improving treatment for opioid use disorder and overdose.

BRAIN Initiative: Reagent Resources for Brain Cell Type-Specific Access and Manipulation to Broaden Distribution of Enabling Technologies for Neuroscience (U24 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

RFA
Thursday, April 8, 2021
Wednesday, July 13, 2022
U24
RFA-MH-21-180

Funding Opportunity Purpose

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) from the NIH Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative is intended to support establishment of facilities at minority-serving institutions (MSIs) and Institutional Development Award (IDeA)-eligible institutions for scaled production and distribution of brain cell type-specific access and manipulation reagents. Reagents will be initially developed in pilot resource projects for brain cell type-specific access and manipulation across vertebrate species from the BRAIN Initiative Armamentarium project. Awardees under this FOA will work with the other Armamentarium awardees to manufacture and distribute the resources for use throughout the neuroscience community. It is envisioned that the awardees will work both with the Armamentarium community as well as with the neuroscience research community to optimize the use of new reagents. The types of reagents to be produced and distributed could include but are not limited to viral vectors, nucleic acid constructs, and nanoparticles designed for selective access to and manipulation of brain cell types. Such reagents will enable neuroscientists to probe circuit function with high precision in experimental animals and ex vivo human tissue and cells. Facilities are needed to contribute to the production and distribution of BRAIN Initiative Armamentarium project reagents broadly to neuroscience users.

R01
RFA-NS-21-013

Funding Opportunity Purpose

(Reissue of RFA-NS-18-030) This FOA solicits applications for research projects that use innovative, methodologically-integrated approaches to understand how circuit activity gives rise to mental experience and behavior. The goal is to support projects that can realize a meaningful outcome within 5 years. Applications should address circuit function in the context of specific neural systems such as sensation, perception, attention, reasoning, intention, decision-making, emotion, navigation, communication or homeostasis. Projects should link theory and data analysis to experimental design and should produce predictive models as deliverables. Projects should aim to improve the understanding of circuits of the central nervous system by systematically controlling stimuli and/or behavior while actively recording and/or manipulating dynamic patterns of neural activity. Projects can use non-human and human species, and applications should explain how the selected species offers ideal conditions for revealing general principles about the circuit basis of a specific behavior.
